He paced each day.

That Stalker!


Details | Senryu | |

NO FATHER'S DAY

he died in the war
no Daddy and no present
the child.. never born

*I grieve for the children, their joy and smiles, who will never be..
Because their future Daddy died in the war!

New World

Missed

Distill emotion
to one cliché “I love you”
call it poetry

Wrap all your feelings
in colorful box, ribbons,
call it greatest gift

Inflated ego
sworn superiority
call it all I need

I hear no trace of
regret in the voice speaking
of indiscretions

I see no sign of
truth in the dark eyes that claim
to love me only

I feel not the touch
of kindness from hands that give
only when they need

Hit-and-run kisses
when all I need is for you
to linger a while

Beware the high ground
only time until the fall
inevitable

Singular captures
only the essence of one
and that one is you

I lost myself there
sometimes I think you love me
for bending to you

So say it’s untrue
though every verb indicates
quite the contrary

I can not believe
manipulated words when
you’re hiding your eyes

Redeem, for this heart
that fell blissful into you
is reaching out still


Details | Senryu | |

I'd Like to Know

The freeways are packed,
Long faces, fatigue, stress
Where are you going?

Like rats in a maze,
Guzzling gas, polluting air
What is so important?

Cell phones and laptops,
Purity of quiet lost
Mankind advances?

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

Eight Months of Heat

Two months past solstice
Subtropical climate sears
Just open the door

Step into oven
Midday sun chars skin and lawns
Sweat flows so freely

Water use rises
AC gives welcome relief
Scalding sand on beach

Take frequent showers
Florida lifestyle envied
Northerners don’t know

Blazing heat last months
Visits to the Sunshine State
Best planned in winter

~A Cowards Way~

Two legged dogs came, I fell 
Prey, Striking me from every direction
Leaving nothing untouched



















I wrote this remembering how I got ambushed when I was little
By these neighborhood girls I once called my friends but when 
I found out they were trouble, I pulled away and made new friends
and that didn't sit well with them and they turned on me,and then 
one unsuspecting day they showed up at my house, all of them..none 
would fight me alone, they all wanted a piece of me and they got it, until 
my brother showed up...But that's a whole different story.It just showed me 
that not everyone is who they seem to be, they were cowards and from that 
moment on, I was careful of how I chose my friends..Thank God after those 
teenage years passed things got better...

Two Worlds Colliding

                                                  teenage rebellion --
                                                potent emotions soar
                                                 hormones run amuck

                                             parents know what's best
                                             safe, moral boundaries set --
                                                     let the war begin

and put on your Thick Layer.

SEEKING RESPITE

I sit quietly,
Enjoying tranquility,
Healing peace at last.

The birds sing sweetly.
Bees and butterflys abound.
Dragonflys come too.

Then he finds me here.
Bringing endless monologue.
What's wrong with the world.

All day every day.
Time really doesn't matter.
We're here together.

It starts when he wakes,
It ends when he goes to bed.
Never changing --- SIGH.

SATURDAY SENRYUS

Morning sojourn --
Sky bridge brisk walk
Twenty-sixth floors above


Morning meditation
Touch of stillness;
Peaceful mindfulness


Midday siesta
Cacophony whispers;
Daydreams solidify


Bout of flu
Runny nose on tap;
Drowsy medication


Meal time reveals
Diet plan on track;
Hunger pangs collide


Wind brings drizzle
Humid atmosphere;
Hot weather desiccates


Skyline contours
Evening sunset hues;
Love comes to call


Corridor commotion
Conflict escalates;
Neighbours fighting mad


Pain aggregates
Petty constellations;
Death greets hypocrisy

Rooted In Torment (Senryu Series)

tangled conundrum
my heart a woven labyrinth
inside your prison

root of my soul bound
ensnared in a mangled web
pulled beneath your lies

I wish to stand tall
Towering majestically
O’er your cowardice

One day I will rise
Breaking the chains of deceit
You will come undone

the sea of man

   exhausted heart weeps
vainly she treds the dark sea
   no sane land in sight

Linger

Awakened, my eyes
             Discern your silhouette as
You trace torments me...

Guilt and Guile

Your face is hidden
The moon is pale, like your eyes
wrapped in guilt's blanket...
